Situation

In many cases, our involvement with a particular species has developed into a series of projects aimed at improving the underlying threats facing that species and its habitats.

Solution

In Mauritius for example, intensive and successful efforts to save a number of bird and reptile species on the edge of extinction from the pervasive impacts of invasive alien species have evolved into long-term programmes to restore ecosystems, so ensuring threatened species have a functioning and safe habitat for many years to come.
